Robert Irwin 'absolutely heartbroken' over devastating Australia wildfires


Ollie, an orphaned platypus, was patient number 90,000 at the Wildlife Hospital, as Bindi's brother, Robert Irwin, said on Instagram. Although, Bindi gave sad news that the hospital in this Wildlife Zoo remains busier than ever.

Last week, Robert's sister Bindi also shared an emotional message about the bushfire crisis on Instagram. "Being the warriors of the wild, we will continue to honor her, to save as many lives as we possibly can".

The Irwin family has rescued and treated over 90,000 animals, many of which were injured in Australia's wildfires.

Terri continued, adding that at this point: "Koalas are classed as vulnerable, and I think after this event, we need to really sit down and look at classing them as endangered and protecting our icons".

They also rescued Blossom the possum who eventually died despite the hospital trying their level best to save her.

According to the Australia zoo, there were only about 40,000 to 100,000 koalas remaining after "uncontrolled habitat destruction". "Thank you for all you do at #AustraliaZoo", one person wrote.

She captioned the pic: "We have such an incredible team who work day and night to protect gorgeous animals like Blossom".

In letter, US military tells Iraq it will withdraw
The letter, first shared by The Washington Post , has been confirmed to Newsweek as authentic by a senior Pentagon official. Withdrawing troops from Iraq at the country's request marks a major moment for the USA occupation.

On Saturday, environmental activist and environmentalist shared another post depicting Opossum Bloss who died after being rescued from fires burned in Queensland, despite the fact that the hospital "tried hard to save her life". This is the heart-wrenching truth, every day is a battle to stand up and speak for those who can not speak for themselves.

Millions of acres have already been ruined and the deadly wildfires continue to rage on in Australia, leaving a devastating impact on the continent's citizens and a horrific feeling of loss for the Irwin family.

Robert Irwin and his mom, Terri Irwin, are heartbroken over the devastating wildfires in Australia.

Science for Wildlife executive director Dr Kellie Leigh told the New South Wales upper house inquiry: "We're getting a lot of lessons out of this and it's just showing how unprepared we are".

In NSW, there are 136 fires still burning, with more than 69 uncontained, including a massive blaze southwest of Eden on the far south coast, which has torn across more than 140,000 hectares.

Scientists say there's no doubt man-made climate change has played a major role in feeding the fires, along with factors like very dry brush and trees and strong winds.
